Getting whole Wheat bread to rise?
I have a whole wheat + molasses & seeds bread recipe. It tastes great but I can never get it to rise. I'm trying to use a no-knead approach...which maybe wrong for this recipe. Here's a photo of the bread and here's the ingrediants.
Any suggestions on how I can get this yummy lump of bread to rise a bit more?
2 1/4 cups white flour
2 Tbsp gluten flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup unsalted sunflower seeds
1/4 cup flax seeds
1/4 rolled oats
3/4 cup diced dates, apricots, or cranberries
Mix dry ingredients thoroughly ceramic bowl
Then add wet Ingredients
1/2 cup warm water & ½ tsp yeast –active dry
1 Tbsp oil
3 Tbsp. Molasses = 45 grams
1+ cup Milk
Proceed in the no-knead style of baking. 18 hour rise, shape, 90 min rise, heat cast iron enamel pot & lid for 30 min...450°, bake for 50 min covered.
